Martin Garrix debuts Ed Sheeran collaboration ‘Rewind Repeat It’ at Ultra
In an interview with FaceCulture last summer, Martin Garrix revealed that he’d been working on a song with Ed Sheeran. After meeting in Los Angeles, Garrix sent a chord progression to Sheeran, who in turn sent back a topline. The next month, Ed posted a picture on Instagram with the caption, “Finished up my very first EDM song with Martin Garrix, brilliant experience, looking forward to you all hearing it.”
It took seven months, but Ed finally got his wish: this weekend at Ultra Music Festival, the world got to hear “Rewind Repeat It.” Though the young DJ revealed to FaceCulture that he initially struggled to work with such a poppy vocal, the end result sounds as natural and effortless as can be. “Rewind Repeat It” features Martin Garrix and Ed Sheeran firing on all cylinders: a superstar producer crafting a sharp instrumental, a superstar singer laying down stunning vocals, and two superstar collaborators playing off one another like they’ve been doing it their whole lives. The collaboration can be streamed above, and more of Martin Garrix’s Ultra highlights are linked below.
